Hannah Polites, 31, who lives on the Gold Coast, Queensland, spoke about signing up with FitAzFk and putting herself first after years of breastfeeding and making poor health decisions for the sake of her children.

On July 17, Hannah completed the challenge with a total weight loss of seven pounds and 26 inches off her waist and hips.

“For the past eight weeks (taking a few breaks or taking for illness) I’ve been feeding my body with whole foods, sacrificing my cotton candy, and allocating just 28 minutes to myself each day to move and transform.

‘I have rediscovered my energy and the woman I am behind the mother, I have found myself again! And she’s confident, passionate, motivated, fierce and just beginning this new journey.’

After four weeks into the challenge, Hannah, who had lost four pounds, shared how she felt before being approached by the team to try out their training method.

“My greatest achievement in life is being a mother, I really know it's exactly where I want to be, where I'm supposed to be.  But even though this is my favorite role and I love them unimaginably, I also have to love myself and take care of myself to be the best mom I can be,

“I try not to let my appearance dictate how I feel, but not taking care of myself has damaged my energy, my motivation and my identity. My love for fitness was a big part of who I was before I had babies and I just know I’m ready to rediscover that passion, ready for a change.”

The FitAzFk method involves completing 28-minute sessions and following a diet plan that fits seamlessly into a busy lifestyle.

“I started this journey because after my third baby I had completely lost my identity, I was always exhausted, gained more than half my body weight (over 24 kg) and barely recognized myself inside and out,” she said. .

“I try on old clothes I never thought I would and I feel stronger, fitter, faster and more powerful,” she said.

‘The physical changes are a nice reward, but they are actually the icing on the cake. What you can’t see in these videos is the incredible improvement in my mental health and overall happiness… I found myself again.

“I feel positive every day, I have so much energy, I get organized and inspired and I am motivated to become the best version of ME.”

‘Good of you!! I am so inspired. I have to do something like that,” a fellow Australian mother wrote to Hannah.

“This is so inspiring – I’m pregnant with my first now and we just moved to a new city so I feel like I’ve lost my body and my identity. When I woke up and saw your message it felt like it was a sign so I signed up for this program this morning,” said another.
